Staff Reviews

While the hero of Pigmares should “never watch monsters on film before bed” we all should read Pigmares: Porcine Poems of the Silver Scream...I mean Screen! From Frankenswine, to Earth vs. the Flying Sausage to Pig Kong each poem is a wonderful tongue-in-cheek good time. You’ll recognize each movie spoof (but if you don’t, there is a guide at the end) in this rhyming poetry book. For the child in us all, Cushman’s poems are laugh-out and read-out-loud fun! (Not just for fans of poetry, can be a great introduction for the reluctant poet.) — Jeanette


When a young pig watches monster movies before bed, he's in for some tail-curling nightmares! From the Phantom Hog of the Opera to the Porker from the Black Lagoon, seventeen poems put a pigmarish spin on creepy classics. Cushman's illustrations evoke retro movie posters with hog-wild humor. A perfect read for young fans of horror, budding movie buffs, and anyone who simply can't stop singing "The Monster Mash"! "Movie Credits" at the end catalogue each poem's inspiration, citing the titles, dates, authors, directors, and stars of the world's scariest stories.
